UITARS are really cool, especially solos. It can have a very profound impact to your spiritual well being. When the notes and melodies of a solo piece touches your heart, and at that point you close your eyes, you know that that aesthetic appreciation has transcended your awareness of existence to a dream land where nothing else matters other than the music in your soul. It is as if you found God. Remember that moment when you sip your black coffee after a long and tiring day? Remember that sweetness of water when the sun sets and you break your fast? Remember that last puff of ciggarettes when yhou decided to quit? Remember that first making of love when you lost your virginity? Well, that's what I'm talking about. Pure blissfulness enveloped by the goodness of life. I hate to extend this poetic thoughts further. To cut short, why not I share the most influential guitar solos, at least those that have a long lasting heartfelt scar on my musical soul. They are, not in any particular order:
